Tommy Wright is hoping a big crowd will pack into Steel Park to welcome his Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division leaders home tomorrow (Saturday).

The Steelmen take on Dorchester Town in their final home game of the regular campaign before hitting the road for the final month.

Corby will rack up the miles after this weekend as they head to title rivals Poole Town for the second leg of the Red Insure Cup final on Tuesday before trips to the likes of Bideford, Truro City, Weymouth and Poole again round off the league season.

The Steelmen sit on top of the table after a 1-0 success at Redditch United was followed by a 2-1 victory at Slough Town on Tuesday night as Wilson Carvalho struck a late winner.

Poole remain the favourites for the crown as they sit a point behind the Steelmen with three games in hand.

But none of those games will be played before the Easter weekend as the Dolphins face up to a hectic run-in.

And Wright insists that makes his team’s task nice and simple.

His next target is to ensure Corby are still sitting at the summit after they have played at Histon on Easter Monday while a victory tomorrow will also guarantee a play-off place.

And he is hoping the supporters will be right behind his team this weekend as they look to end their home campaign on a high note by extending their unbeaten run at Steel Park to 15 games in all competitions.

“It’s our last home game of the season and we want to produce a good performance and a good result for the fans,” the Corby boss said.

“I had a few words about the supporters a week or so ago when I asked them to get off the players’ backs a bit.

“But now is the time when we need them turning up in their numbers and getting right behind the lads.

“It will be great to be given a boost by the fans going into the away matches when the crowds might not be so big.

“We come back home on top of the table and we want to give ourselves some momentum for the second leg of the cup final on Tuesday.

“As far as the league is concerned, we have an opportunity to be on top of the table until just after Easter.

“So the target is simple. Let’s try to win three games and make sure we are still top come 5pm on Easter Monday.

“If that is the case then we can do no more. It will be all up to Poole from there and if they go and win the games that give them the title then fair play to them.

“They will have a lot of games to play in a short space of time but it’s in their hands as it has been for a long time.”

The Steelmen will be without top scorer Spencer Weir-Daley for Saturday and Tuesday as he remains on international duty with Montserrat.
